Fancy pay toilet uses 14 gallons of water per use

Some City Room readers were understandably perplexed by the 14 gallons of water consumed by each use of the spiffy new pay toilet at Madison Square Park. So we will break it down for you, according to what Cemusa, the Spanish advertising conglomerate that runs the toilets, told us:
Toilet flush: 1.29 gallons
Basin auto-cleaning: 1.2 gallons
Toilet auto-cleaning: 3.85 gallons
Floor auto-cleaning 7.71 gallons
The total (not including any hand-washing) is 14 gallons, give or take.

A Toilet That Uses 14 Gallons? ‘Oh Gosh!’
